A sample question paper with answers is given in this section to help you understand the kind of questions that you can expect in your entrance exam.

**General Aptitude**

1.) A bag contains red and blue marbles totaling between 50 and 100 in number. If two marbles are drawn at random, the chances of them both being red are 25%. One third of the marbles are picked from the bag, at random, and thrown away. If one marble is now drawn at random from the bag, what is the probability (in percentage) of it being blue?

(a) 11 (b) 25 (c) 33 (d) 50

2.) Consider the following equation: log 13.25 + 5 log 2 + 3 log 3 + log 12 = log 53 + log 8 + log 27 + X

The value of X is…..

(a) 4 log 26.5 (b) log 12 (c) log 36 (d) 27

3.) Chetan, Bhushan and Shailu start running at the same time from the same point on a circular track of 70 meters radius. Chetan and Bhushan run clockwise and Shailu runs counter clockwise. If Chetan meets Shailu every 66 seconds and Bhushan meets Shailu every 110 seconds, how frequently (in seconds) will Chetan meet Bhushan?

(a) 165 (b) 176 (c) 330 (d) 44

4.) What is the probability that the product of two consecutive non-negative integers will be a number ending with 0.
